Matching Gifts

What is a Corporation Matching Program?

 

Many companies allow their employees or retirees to direct their charitable giving programs through matching gifts.  When an employee notifies the company that he/she has made a charitable donation to the Family Center PTO, the company will make a gift of usually the same amount.  Any financial gifts to the Family Center PTO are eligible to be matched.  

 

How Does it Work?

 Find out how your company can help support your PTO!

 

Step 1.     Does your corporation match?  Click here https://www.matchinggifts.com/rit/  Use the link to find out if your company will match your Family Center PTO donation.  You can print out a form or be directed to your company's online donation form through the link.

 

Step 2.     Complete your company's gift matching form by choosing Clayton School District - Parent Teacher Organization Council tax EIN number 43-1747553.

 

Step 3.     Matching donations would be Funds for Excellence (FFE), Care/Crisis Funds, Dues, Staff Appreciation.  Exclusions for matches would be a service/item that you received such as T-shirt purchases, yearbook purchases, and class party fees.

 

Step 4.     If there is a memo section, please put your school name (the Family Center)/child's name so that the Clayton School District - PTO Council can get your match donation to the Family Center PTO as soon as possible.

 


You have one year from the time you donate to submit your corporate match donations. Contact the Family Center PTO Treasurer to confirm your past donations and submit your Corporate Match donations today!

 

The Family Center PTO thanks you and your corporations for their support. Any additional questions, please contact the PTO Council at ptocouncil@claytonschools.net
